Paul Harris Fellow and Living Treasures named.MARK DOSSOR April 9, 2014 3:11am
It was a special night at last week’s Seymour Rotary Club meeting with three very special people receiving recognition.
Many will know of the work of Ron Fullerton. His efforts include community contribution via Meals on Wheels, Karingal, the Masonic Lodge where he was secretary for 30 years, Seymour Cemetery Trust, Scouts and the Tennis Club.
His most recent work, and still a passion, is the restoration and maintenance of Pioneer Park.
Past Rotary District Governor (and former local) David Louden was on hand to present him with a Paul Harris Fellow, a special recognition awarded by Rotary for outstanding community contribution.
Keith McLarty and Bob Collins were also lauded as Rotary Club of Seymour ‘‘Living Treasures’’ after a combined 78 years of community service.
We congratulate these three outstanding local identities for their contribution to the Seymour community.
